Owners and licensed aestheticians Sandra Cossa-Ortiz and Colleen McMahon tend to all of Dare to be Bare's clients, and the pair has garnered praise from Westchester Magazine for their warm personalities and thorough attention to detail. By incorporating ultrasonic vibrations into their treatments, they promote vitamin absorption, encourage collagen regeneration, and reduce wrinkles caused by frowning or impersonating a raisin. They also pamper skin surfaces with facials, diamond microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. For clients inclined to more traditional hair-removal methods, Sandra and Colleen liberate hirsute patches using a lavender-chamomile-blended wax that lends skin a flower's smoothness and attractiveness to butterflies.
Hot stones and aromatherapy oils gently glide across the body inside private rooms at @ease Spa, unwinding tight muscles and calming tense minds. Aromatherapy is also used during facials to rebalance the complexion and make sure clients don't leave with their faces smelling like regular old skin. Other relaxing services at the spa include a full-body sugar or Dead Sea mud rub and Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient technique where light pressure is applied to 26 specific points on the body to relieve aches and improve respiration. No matter the treatment, the spa's massage therapists are glad to customize pressure to each guest's liking, and afterward, a complimentary sauna and shower await.
